Honeywell announces greenhouse gas emissions software
Honeywells facility-wide GHG emissions reporting dashboard can help companies meet this requirement in a simple, cost-effective, low-risk manner, and provide flexibility as environmental, regulatory and operating conditions change in the future. The GHG emissions dashboard, in conjunction with the Cirrus EIS Environmental Information Systems measures, acquires, calculates, records and analyzes emissions data and accurately notifies and reports from multiple emissions sources.
In addition to a facility-wide GHG emissions reporting dashboard, Honeywell offers consulting support services to help companies design optimal data collection strategies. These solutions can stand alone or be integrated into Honeywell control systems, Cirrus EIS or third-party control systems.
The GHG emissions dashboard is included in the Honeywell Energy Dashboard, which is part of the companys larger Energy Management Solutions portfolio. The portfolio helps processing facilities improve energy efficiency and reduce GHG emissions, and the dashboard gathers information from various instruments and systems and tracks their energy consumption against dynamic energy targets. The Energy Dashboard enables users to establish specific goals for reducing energy consumption, costs and the associated GHG emissions, as well as to measure actual performance against those goals.
Reporting CO2 isnt a one-size-fits-all approach because industrial plants will have unique needs in complying with this new regulation, said Chris Jones, director for Energy Efficiency and Green Initiatives, Honeywell Process Solutions. Some will need to expand emissions monitoring by adding CO2 capabilities, others will require calculations to determine emissions, and some of those will use more complex calculations than others. Honeywell will work with these companies to determine their specific compliance needs and offer the right solutions to meet those needs.
Reporting GHG emissions may not be the final requirement for the process industries; its reasonable to expect that future regulations will require emissions reduction and adherence to targets, said Jones. Honeywell is strongly positioned to help manufacturers not only meet challenges posed by these new requirements, but prepare for future requirements down the road.
